2024-2027 Strategic Plan.

In 2023 the Downtown Kingston BIA Board of Management, staff, partners and select members engaged in a 2-day strategic priority workshop with the goal of producing a 4-year strategic plan that would resonate with our greater membership, that was aligned with our partners and that gave the staff a roadmap forward.
